Project: Leaking shower surround repair at Forestville

forestville waterproofing

Before. The surround of this original shower was leaking.

Forestville waterproofing and shower repairs.

This Forestville customer noticed that their shower was leaking when under the house one day he noticed water on the dirt floor beneath the bathroom.

Once onsite, our waterproofer undertook a range of water leak tests and ascertained that it was the shower surround that was leaking.  The grout had decayed and broken down and, each time someone in the house had a shower, water was leaking through the many gaps in the grout.

While the bathroom was old, it was in very good condition.  The owner was seeking an affordable solution and we were happy to help.

During. The first row of tiles were removed. Two coats of polyurethane waterproofing was applied.

First, we removed the first row of wall tiles surrounding the shower.  We applied two coats of polyurethane waterproofing to the wall beneath the tiles.  This provides an impenetrable waterproof barrier, even if the tile grout fails again in the future.

Once the polyurethane waterproofing was dry, we retiled.  The floor was regrouted and, to provide further protection, we applied our Drip Dry epoxy seal to the perimeter of the shower.

Needless to say, the owner was very happy with the result and relieved the shower won’t be causing any further issues for many, many years to come.
